Dedication 




As a manifestation of our gratitude for his 
intelligent, aggressive, and successful effort 
that this institution be allowed to grant de- 
grees; in appreciation of his sincerity as an 
instructor; with respect for his integrity as 
an individual; the class of 1949 is proud to 
dedicate this issue of the Fabricator to Mr. 
John E. Foster. 



Mis 'tort/ of the 
fiew Bedford Zextile Institute 

UNDER a special act of the Massachusetts Legislature, authorizing any 
city with 450,000 or more spindles to organize a corporation whose 
objective would be the establishment of a textile school, the New Bedford 
Textile School was founded in 1895. With funds appropriated by the City 
of New Bedford and the Commonwealth, the first building was erected 
and readied for the fall session of 1899. This enrollment consisted of 11 
day and 183 evening students. The first graduation was held in 1900, as the 
course was then of only one year's duration. Within a short period this 
was extended to three years; this program prevailed up to the present ex- 
tension to four years. 

Due to a rapidly increasing enrollment and a constant improvement 
and expansion into related fields, new additions to the school were built 
in 1901, 1905, 1911, and 1923. These structures joined the original build- 
ing on the North, South, and West, and today house the Mechanical, Knitting, 
Chemistry, and Designing Departments, the Gymnasium, and sections of the 
Weaving and C. Y. P. Departments. The acquisition of new and diversified 
equipment down through the years has contributed to its recognition through- 
out the world as an excellent textile training center. It became a state 
institution in 1918. 

In 1940 a special course for girls was added to the curriculum; in 
addition, during the war, the school offered training in nutrition, food 
analysis, and machine shopp practice for girls. With the end of hostilities 
the school encountered record enrollments that have not as yet abated. 

In preparation for things to come, the name was changed from "school" 
to "institute" in January 1946. In May 1947, the trustees were given 
authority by the State Legislature to grant degrees in textile, chemical, 
and mechanical engineering. During the ensuing 18 months active plans 
were formulated, and in November 1948 the expanded curriculum was 
approved by the State Board of Collegiate Authority. The long awaited 
four year degree-granting courses of study became a reality. In the midst 
of this preparatory period, the institute celebrated its fiftieth anniversary 
in May 1948. The golden jubilee festivities were well attended by alumni 
from all parts of the country and the world. 

At present there are two bills before the State Legislature. These 
seek to appropriate land adjoining the Institute and funds for the construc- 
tion of a large new building to further supplement the classroom, machinery, 
and laboratory needs of this rapidly expanding educational institution. 



/// Appreciation 




For thirty-five years of conscientious and devoted service 
to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, this tribute is 
made to Miss Maud L. Clark upon her recent retirement as 
principal clerk and treasurer of the New Bedford Textile 
Institute. Although her activities did not involve direct 
contact with the students, her sincere interest and willing- 
ness to help when called upon were very much appreciated. 
May her well-deserved retirement be restful and rewarding. 




Message from the Governor 



I welcome the opportunity to extend the greetings of the Common- 
wealth to the Senior Class of the New Bedford Textile Institute through 
the medium of your class publication, "The Fabricator." 

When one of my predecessors, Governor Frederick T. Creenhalge 
signed a bill on June 5, 1895, which provided for the establishment of 
textile schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, it initiated an educa- 
tional offering to the youth of our Commonwealth consistent with the 
desirability and necessity of specially trained personnel for entrance into 
our great textile industry. 

Throughout the intervening years, the New Bedford Textile School, 
now known as the New Bedford Textile Institute, has trained hundreds of 
young men who entered the textile industry here and elsewhere and the 
Commonwealth is justly proud of their achievements and of the school itself. 

It is heartening to know that leaders in the textile industry view the 
present and future outlook with the utmost confidence and that such 
confidence was reflected by the action of our General Court in 1947 which 
authorized the granting of degrees of Bachelor of Science in Textile En- 
gineering, Bachelor of Science in Textile Chemistry, and Bachelor of Science 
in Machine Design, together with authorization for the appropriate enrich- 
ment of the curriculum in the preparation for these degrees. 

Therefore, in addition to my official greeting, may I personally join 
with you members of the graduating class of 1949 in heartfelt thanks to 
the citizens of the Commonwealth as well as the city of New Bedford whose 
constant cooperation make this great school possible. 

Sincerely, 

PAUL A. DEVER. 




Message from the Dean 



At this time we extend our congratulations to you who are about to 
face the challenging realities of life under the competitive system. Now 
that you have earned the honor and distinction of a diploma or degree, it is 
proper that you should expect recompense for your knowledge and services; 
but, in return, you must give the best you have — not just enough to get by, 
but more than is expected of you, if you are to assume that position of trust 
and responsibility for which you have been trained. 

There is no denying the fact that the employer will be a man who knows 
values, not only in machines and materials, but also in personnel. He will 
readily see the potentialities of the new man, his ability to do constructive 
thinking and to apply this thinking to the many problems which constantly 
face an ever-changing industry. The young man who, without quibble or 
question, without argument or hesitation, can and will do what he is told, 
is at a premium in any business. 

As this school year comes to a close we should, with pardonable pride, 
feel happy in that New Bedford Textile Institute is now a degree-granting 
institution. This is without doubt the greatest forward step since its 
establishment fifty years ago. I wish to express my sincere thanks and 
appreciation to the trustee board, the faculty, alumni, and others for their 
excellent cooperation in bringing about this noteworthy change. With 
knowledge, wisdom, enthusiasm, loyalty, and hard work, New Bedford Tex- 
tile Institute together with its graduates will continue to go forward. 

Sincerely, 

GEORGE WALKER, Dean.

For three years we have been looking forward to graduation 
with eagerness and hopeful anticipation. These same sentiments 
now concern that which lies ahead. Let us, therefore, carry into 
industry a spirit of fair play and understanding, a faith in our- 
selves, and a hope for the rightful recognition of our individual 
worth; but, above all, let us respect the dignity of our fellow 
man.

First Year Technology 

We help to form the Freshman class 
Just four of us — each one a lass. 
To this school we came agog 
And tried our best to clear the fog. 

Our minds were in a muddle 
The warp we got confused, 
We felt as if the brains we have 
Could be known as "used." 

Designing? sure that's swell. 
We loved to make the crosses, 
But when it came to weaving 
Qur gains became our losses! 

When Analysis was concerned 
We reached a sad conclusion, 
Thinking in that class is 
Very sadly an illusion. 

As the days continued on 
We faced our studies lighter 
And agreed quite gingerly 
We are all a little brighter. 

To be seniors is now our hope 
We're looking forward to the day. 
And what's nice about it all 
Is that it's only a year away. 

Before we end our "speel" 

We humbly say (and each one does kneel). 

The best to the grads (that's you) 

From "Barb", "Jan", "Red", "Lou", and "Hope"

"A Mw Slement is Discovered" 



Prof. Broadmeadow of the Chemistry 
Department announces the discovery of a 
new element to be called Schmolium. For 
many years scientists have suspected an ele- 
ment would be found with a smaller atomic 
number than Hydrogen, but it was quite by 
accident that Prof. Broadmeadow stumb- 
led upon the reaction that isolated the ele- 
ment. He was groping around in the chem- 
ical stockroom one day when the light switch 
was on the blink, looking for a bottle of 
Erie Fast Red FD, and knocked several 
acid bottles from the shelf. A dull red glow 
appeared, followed by a loud report. When 
the smoke cleared away, there remained an 
appreciable quantity of Schmolium. 

Preliminary examinations show that the 
nucleus of the atom contains one electron 
and has a positron in its outer shell. This 
is interesting, since the ratio of charge to 
mass can vary from plus infinity to minus 
infinity by removing one or the other. Its 
use as an "Atomic Bullet" is questionable 
as in the instance of K. E.= V2 MV- the 
answer is zero. Prof. Broadmeadow visual- 
izes great things can come from Schmol- 
ium; he states that by turning the atom in- 
side out and inserting a proton into its 
nucleus you can make a hydrogen atom. 
Prof. Broadmeadow doubts if this method of 
making hydrogen will supplant the method 
used in the reduction of nitrobenzene, name- 
ly from scrap iron and commercial Hydro- 
chloric, but it would be fun, he says. 

There is no doubt that Schmolium is the 
active ingredient in Irium and puts the sol 
in Solium. Prof. Broadmeadow asserts that 
if a small amount of Schmolium was to be 
added to the Toni Refill Kit, there would be 
no doubt which twin had had it. 

New Bedford Textile Institute 
Research Department 



Comments by members of the Institute 
Staff on the new element. 

Mr. Foster: "No Comment." 

Mr. Beardsworth: "I can think of three 
possible applications of Schmolium: 1. As 
an injection to keep Silvia awake mornings. 
2. As an application to warp yarns to 
eliminate breakage and to effect a redraw 
when they do break. 3. As a treatment to 
keep students upright in their seats and 
with feet on the floor. 

Mr. Saltus: "Only a schmo could dis- 
cover schmolium. Also the effect this new 
element will have on Einstein's space time 
is incalculable. Since E=mc~, we have in 
schmolium the answer to Einstein's predic- 
tions of decreasing mass at velocities ap- 



proaching that of light. Schmolium con- 
tradicts Einstein! It is New Bedford Textile's 
answer to Princeton." Mr. Saltus went on 
to say, "the experimental technique describ- 
ed is in keeping with the best traditions of 
Physics and Chemistry. These techniques 
reflect faithfully an extremely cautious 
personality. 

Mr. Dupre: "I feel the discovery of this 
element is the beginning of the revolution 
in textile dyeing and printing industry. 
Also this should create so much interest in 
classes that student absences and tardiness 
will no longer be a problem. 

Mr. Sullivan: "Historically, this discov- 
ery has no significance." 

Mr. Giblin: There are innumerable pos- 
sibilities for Schmolium in its plastic state; 
it will replace vinylite as table covering, it 
will replace nylon in women's stockings, and 
when cut into staple fiber will cause cotton 
and rayon to sit up and take notice. 



At an interview with Prof. Broadmeadow, 
the discoverer of the new element, Schmol- 
ium, chemical symbol SH, one month after 
his initial mishap in the chemical stock- 
room, the following took place: 

Editor: "Anything new on Schmolium, 
Prof.?" 

Prof. B. "Yes. The Twin now wears a 
wig." 

Editor: "How about its large scale pro- 
duction?" 

Prof. B. "We are getting a giant cyclo- 
tron; we find that if we "bombard" a stu- 
dent preparation of Orange 2 with alpha 
particles, Schmolium precipitates in the 
dyebath. 

Editor: "Where is the cyclotron going, 
in the new building?" 

Prof. B. "We can't wait; we intend to 
rip out all the looms on the second floor, 
or use the first year chem lab. 

Editor: "How about the effect of the dis- 
covery of Schmolium on world stability, 
Prof.?" 

Prof. B. "There have been some shady 
characters poking around in the chem de- 
partment who do not answer roll call. I 
think they are some of Joe's boys. Along 
side of a hooker of Schmoliuum, chemical 
symbol Sh, Vodka is pink tea!" 

Editor: "Anything else?" 

Prof. B. "We put one of Brown's living 
cells into a thimble full of Sh. It incubat- 
ed 48 hours at 100 degrees F." 

Editor: "Yes?" 

Prof. B. "The cell is taking over the 
Organic lectures."

Mumor ? ? 



Memories so dear — Remember 

When Mr. B. dismissed the chem class 
early, asking them to go down quietly so 
as not to wake the other classes. 

The engineers stock answer to Mr. F.'s 
famous "What do you say, back there?" 
"Put in Lefty." 

Riley, Dupre, and the light in the hall 
at Keene, N. H. 



Aitken, sad and beat after a hard night 
and looking the worse for wear, was stand- 
ing on the corner waiting for a bus. A kind- 
ly looking old lady walked up and pressed 
a dollar bill into his hand, sympathetically 
saying, "Never despair." The next morn- 
ing Aitken saw the same lady and walked 
over handing her nine dollars. Surprised, 
she asked, "What does this mean?" "It 
means," said Aitken, "that 'Never Des- 
pair' won and paid 8 to 1 ." 



One morning Artie was breakfasting out 
at the Orchid and Soupy dished up a special 
boiled egg. On the shell was written: "To 
whom it may concern: should this meet 
the eye of some young man who desires 
to marry a farmer's daughter, 1 8 years of 

age, kindly communicate with . 

After noting the address, he ate the egg, 
ran home, and wrote offering marriage. In 
a few days he received a reply, "Thank 
you very much, but your offer came too late. 
I'm now married and have four children." 



Mr. Fenaux: "This exam will be conduct- 
ed on the honor system. Please take seats 
three chairs apart and in alternate rows." 



Mr. Pacheco: "Before we begin the ex- 
amination, are there any questions?" 

Szabo: "What's the name of this course?" 



Mr. Saltus: "Now we find that X is equal 
to zero." 

Manny: "Gee! All that work for nothing." 



Mr. Foster: "What do we mean when 
we say the whole is greater than any of 
its parts?" 

Collins: "A restaurant doughnut." 



Questioner: "Are you a college man?" 

Harold: "No, a horse just stepped on my 
hat." 



Elliot: "Give me a match, Doc." 

Doc: "Here it is." 

Elliot: "Well, can you beat that? I've 
forgotten my cigarettes!" 

Doc: "That's too bad, give me back my 
match." 



z obel : "What are your terms for stu- 
dents?" 

Landlady: "Bums, loafers, dead beats and 
wonderful promises." 



Overheard at Inter-School Dance — 

Durfee Engineer: "Our weaving instructor 
talks to himself. Does yours?" 

New Bedford Engineer: "Yes, but he 
doesn't realize it — he thinks we are lis- 
tening." 



Silvia: "No more of that chick for me!" 
Chinky: "Why?" 

Silvia: "She asked me if I dance." 
Chinky: "What's wrong with that?" 
Silvia: "We were dancing when she 
asked me." 



Bargiel: "I don't know what's the mat- 
ter, I never danced so poorly before." 

Date: "Oh, then you have danced be- 
fore." 



"How do you know he is from Canada?" 
"He dances as if he had snow-shoes on." 



Bob Heaps: "What would you advise me 
to read after graduating?" 

Mr. Silva: "The 'Help Wanted' column." 



Carabell in Math Class: "How far are 
you from the correct answer?" 
Kranich: "Two seats." 



"Did you have the car out last night?'' 
Silveira: "Yes, I took some of the boys 

from school for a run around." 

"Well, tell them I found two of their 

lipsticks." 



Statistics show that Yale graduates have 
1 .3 children, while Vassar graduates have 
1 .7 children, which proves the women 
still have more children than men.

Student Council 



The formation of a Student Council during this past year is another landmark in the 
growth and development of the New Bedford Textile Institute. This organization has 
already emerged from its infancy, and is slowly becoming a clearing house for student 
suggestions and reactions, which after sifting the wheat from the chaff, have often led to 
beneficial situations. Although loosely knit at first, the group has taken on stature, and 
has begun to serve as a sounding board for student opinion, an important factor in any 
educational institution. 

Originally as pictured above, the council was composed of one delegate from each class; 
this group was later augmented by an additional delegate from each class. In addition to 
representing their classes, the council delegates also constitute a good cross section of the 
student population, as there are local, out-of-town, and foreign students at the school and 
on the council.

School Mand 



The School Band, one of the several extra-curricular activities at the 
institute, has brought many pleasant moments to the student body since its 
successful debut at the first assembly sponsored by the Student Council. 

This organization is composed of very capable performers who, as a 
group, have proved themselves to be a very valuable asset to the institute. In 
the dance hall, on the concert stage, or at the athletic field, their ability to 
adjust themselves to the locale has amazed everyone. 

This success was attained through many hours of practice under the 
leadership of Mr. John R. Barylski of the faculty.

jHter-Jratemity Council 

The Inter-Fraternity Council is an organization consisting of the Councilor of the 
Sorority and the Councilor of each of the three Fraternities; in addition, it includes a faculty 
advisor, Mr. Dupre, together with two delegates representing the Sorority and each Fraternity. 
It meets periodically, on a roving chairmanship basis, and serves as a clearing house for the 
activities of each group so as to prevent duplication of effort and needless conflict of dates 
regarding future activities. At the meetings, pledging procedures are agreed upon, and 
general information and opinions of common interest are exchanged. 

During the past year the Council sponsored the "Inter-School Dance" on behalf of 
the New Bedford Textile Institute in conjunction with the Inter-Fraternity Council of the 
Bradford-Durfee Technical Institute at the New Bedford Country Club. The third annual 
(since the war) "Inter-Fraternity Dance" was held at the New Bedford Hotel. 

The purpose of the Inter-Fraternity Council, as stated in the Preamble to its Consti- 
tution, adopted October 1, 1947, is that of "advancing social welfare and promoting friendly 
feeling amongst Sororities and Fraternities of the New Bedford Textile Institute." Its effec- 
tiveness will continue to depend upon the support given by Sorority and Fraternity members 
to their representatives on, and to matters proposed by, the Council.

ACTIVITIES 

This has been a successful year for Delta Chapter, as the membership 
has partaken of many enjoyable events. Late in September, our brother, 
S. Carlson, had the alumni and members of Delta Chapter as his guests at 
a clambake in Marshfield; this will long be remembered. 

During the jubilee, Delta Kappa had a suite of rooms at the New Bed- 
ford Hotel where the alumni met old acquaintances. Among those who 
attended were William A. Karl, Ed. Murphy, T. B. O'Brien, Chuck Head, 
and others. 

Inter-frat bowling was sponsored by Mr. Fenaux, who did an excellent 
job in bringing this about. Chapter member Miltes Antunes was instru- 
mental in organizing the varsity soccer team and the intra-mural ping 
pong team. 

The initiation was held in February and fifteen new members were 
inducted. In April we held our fiftieth Annual Convention; this business 
and social affair was the climax of Delta Chapter activity for the school 
year. 

A farewell party is planned at the end of the school year for the brothers 
who are graduating. The future looks bright for the coming year; many 
important and enjoyable activities are planned.

ACTIVITIES 

The 1948 Convention was held in conjunction with the Golden Jubilee 
of the New Bedford Textile Institute, and was sponsored by Beta Chapter 
and the New Bedford Alumni Chapter. The fabric and student work dis- 
play of the various schools the chapters represented received much fav- 
orable comment for its excellence. The first of $100.00 and a Plaque 
donated by Andrew Macy, an alumnus of Beta, was won for the second 
year in a row by Beta Chapter. 

A Smoker was held in October at Carpenter's Hall with about ninety 
freshmen as guests. Later that month an Open-House meeting was also 
held at Carpenter's Hall. The Honored Guest and speaker of the evening 
was Harold H. Hart, Executive Secretary of the Grand Council. 

Other social events of the year included a very successful informal 
dance sponsored by Beta Chapter, and a stag at which members of Delta 
Chapter at Bradford-Durfee were present. Both chapters agreed that an- 
other such get-together should take place in the near future. 

This year the Annual Convention will be held during the first week 
of May in Atlanta, Georgia. Theta Chapter of Georgia Tech will be host. 
Plans are now under way for this year's student display under the able 
supervision of Mr. Giblin, faculty advisor. It is hoped we can win this 
award for the third successive year. 

Plans for our annual dinner dance have been outlined. This event, 
which has been highly successful in past years, is held for chapter members 
only. It will conclude another prosperous year for Beta Chapter.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE YEAR 

April — Installation of Officers held at the Sunlight Restaurant; a smorges- 
bord dinner was well taken care of by the chapter actives and local 
alumni. Bowling party followed. At a meeting later in the month, 
guest speaker Clifford Ashley of Nonquitt Mills spoke on new tech- 
niques in cloth manufacture. 

May — Feverish activity in connection with final exams; we passed! These 
were followed by a "blow-out" beer party at Carpenter's Hall. Most 
of the brothers managed to survive. 

June — The long awaited summer recess finally arrived and the members 
scattered as usual to points in all directions away from New Bedford. 

September — The return from the long "rest" was as spirited as the de- 
parture had been three months earlier. The new "experiences" were 
exchanged in short order, and then things returned to normal. 

October — New business of the year was eagerly taken up and committees 
began to work a bit. Catching up with school work after the sum- 
mer absence of "book-cracking" seemed to occupy the time well, 
but not to exclude all other activity, such as a bowling party on the 
treasury; all attended, of course. 

November — N. B. T. I. was given official permission to grant Bachelor 
degrees in Chemistry, Textile Engineering and Machine Design. This 
was good news to all the students whose B. S. was now a thing come 
true. At a combined business and social meeting, Dr. Boris Frankfurter, 
chief chemist of the Normandie Print Works, spoke briefly on textile 
printing, particularly screen printing. 

December — Pledging bids were accepted by six freshmen. Their trade 
mark around school was the wearing of an enlarged key, Phi Beta 
Kappa type, but containing a more appropriate inscription. Black and 
gold beanies later substituted for the keys. The Christmas vacation 
did not creep up on us by any means, and the boys repaired to Miami, 
Mexico, Brooklyn and the Bronx. 

January — The 2nd Annual Winter Frolic held at the Community Center was 
a social success. The fireplace and candle lighted rooms of the big 
old house looked festive, and the dancers a mite tired by midnight. 
Followed almost immediately by Mid-Year exams; ho hum. 

February — With the new term we all bought new slates; the old ones had 
been wiped clean too many times. While on the subject of wiping, 
the pledgees thought we were going to wipe the floor with them; well, 
we did try. Initiations are so much fun! Boris Karloff and Peter 
Lorre couldn't make it, but we used a coke bottle instead. 

March — Third set of officers since Beta's reactivation was elected, and 
their thoughts immediately turned to the somewhat reduced size the 
group would assume after the June graduation. The Annual Conven- 
tion in New York was attended by several Beta men, who as usual 
looked forward to the next one.

The Phi Zeta Sigma Sorority opened its 1948-49 year and election of officers. . Those 
who were elected are: 

President — Simonne Meurin Vice-President — Barbara Sarkes Treasurer — Irene Jaremko 
Secretary — Christine Muir Publicity Manager — Priscilla Turner 

A resolution was made at the beginning of the year that social events would be abundant. 
The calendar began with a buffet lunch in the girl's lounge at school to welcome the Fresh- 
man girls to the school. Each succeeding month was highlighted with an event such as a 
hay ride, theater party, bowling party, Christmas party, annual banquet, and a Valentine 
party. A fact of more than incidental importance is that we were the victors over Delta 
Kappa Phi at the bowling party — with a slight margin, of course, 13 pins. 

Before Christmas a trip was made to the Bradford- Durfee Technical Institute in Fall 
River to bring the girls of the two schools closer together. We are also very pleased that 
through correspondence a friendship has been established between the girls of the Philadelphia 
Textile Institute and those at our own school. 

Early in January our sorority sister and capable officer, Dorine Fredette left school. 
A special election was held to fill the vacancy created by her departure. Christine Muir was 
elected secretary for the remainder of the school year. 

Our lounge is our pride and joy. We worked hard at redecorating it, but the labor 
proved rewarding when we saw how the furnishings shone anew. 

The Phi Zeta Sigma Sorority wishes to thank the Fraternities for their aid in answering 
our questions and for helping us to strengthen the foundation of our organization. 

To the graduates, may we say, "Congratulations and best of luck in your future work."

What the Zextile Industry Expects from ]fou 

By WILLIAM A. NEWELL, Assistant Editor, TEXTILE WORLD 

The recent textile-school graduate is envied today by many of those 
men for and with whom he will be working. He has been endowed with 
advantages and training never before available to many of his predecessors 
in the industry. He is entering an industry which has a new attitude toward 
him reflecting a respect and a need for his potentialities. Textile-industry 
leaders today feel that their greatest need is for intelligent, trained men on 
whom they can draw for future management. 

But this new industry attitude and your textile-school diploma do not 
alone insure your success. The new attitude of industry insures only your 
chance of being successful. Your diploma certifies that you have received 
two things from your school: (1 ) a basic and fundamental knowledge of the 
materials and machines of your industry, and (2) an ability to think. Of the 
two, the ability to think will prove by far the more important. Your early 
days in industry will show you how really fundamental, yet really necessary, 
your training in materials and machines has been. 

The industry you are entering expects you to combine this textile train- 
ing with the ability to think and apply both to the problem of your industry. 
The free-enterprise system has insured the survival of your mill as long as 
it has continued to do a better job at a lower cost. Your company expects 
you to find new ways to do the old jobs better in order that your company 
may continue to survive. 

Your formula is neither new, complicated, nor easy. It requires that 
you apply yourself to your every job, master it, find the one best way to do 
it, make its performance routine, and then start the same cycle with your 
next task. Your objective always: to help your mill raise production, cut 
costs, improve quality, and sell more goods. 

In approaching each new task, learn all you can about how it fits into 
the work of the entire plant. Learn well how it is done. Study its every 
aspect until you're its master. Then try the variations — there is one best 
way to do every task. Find it. If you can, eliminate the job. Never worry 
about working yourself out of a job by eliminating your own. 

Keep abreast of new developments and recommend their use when a 
thorough analysis indicates their profitable application. Study well the 
industry journals' which contain the lessons of your never-ending post- 
graduate textile studies. Maintain an analytical outlook — correct waste- 
ful practices. 

Next, adopt systematic procedures to make routine and automatic as 
much work as possible. Free yourself of routine tasks in order that you 
may direct your attention to constructive work. Organize your work so 
that you must deal only with the exceptions that do not fit the system. 
Then revise the system to provide for future similar exceptions. 

Such is the way of good management. Meet every crisis with a plan 
for preventing its recurrence and your crises will become fewer and fur- 
ther between. Simultaneously you will find yourself being raised above 
those of your associates whose continual attention to routine details pre- 
vent their forward, constructive thinking. 

Figuratively speaking, your training in textile has taught you only 
to tell a loom from a lathe. It is how well you apply and develop your 
second asset, the ability to think, to develop your textile knowledge that 
will determine your success.

baseball ZeatH 



The baseball season, although somewhat abbreviated by 
postponements caused by inclement weather, was significant in 
the fact that Durfee Textile, the Red and Cray's most bitter rival, 
was decisively beaten by a 6 to 1 score. This game was high- 
lighted by the brilliant pitching of John Motha, who was credited 
with 10 strikeouts. John received excellent support both in the 
field and at the plate. In the latter department, Maurice Letour- 
neau's two hits and Charley Pappas' double were deciding fac- 
tors in the outcome of the game.

NEW BEDFORD TEXTIL 



Calvin Coolidge College of Boston was Textile's only other 
win of the season. John Silvia's relief hurling combined with 
the brilliant fielding of Chinky Vanasse and Sam Helfand's 
hitting gave Tech a well deserved 5 to 3 win. 

Becker College, with a big five run rally in the fifth inning, 
proved to be too much for the Institute, although Art Sirois out- 
did himself in the pitching role, racking up 12 strike outs. Un- 
timely errors in the field were the main reason for the Red and 
Grey's downfall. The ever-reliable Chinky Vanasse played his 
usual fine game in the infield. 

Suffolk University pushed across seven runs in the first 
inning; to overcome these would have been a job of Herculean 
proportions. It was only the brilliant relief hurling of John 
Murphy and the spectacular fielding display put on by Al Wood 
that held the score down. Charley Pappas, Sam Helfand, and 
Maurice Letourneau did their best to whittle down Suffolk's 
lead, but that big first inning proved to be disastrous. 

The remainder of the schedule, which included games with 
Becker at Worcester, Lowell, and Wentworth, was rained out. 

Faculty manager, Mr. Adam Bayreuther, has lined up a six 
game schedule this year, with the hope of acquiring at least 
two more games. Listed are two games with Becker and Durfee, 
one with Quonset Naval, and one with Suffolk. The squad has 
hopes for an excellent season this year, as just about all of last 
year's team returned.

basketball Zeatn 



The 1948-1949 basketball squad at the Institute faced what was prob- 
ably the toughest schedule ever to confront a Tech squad. Coach Francis 
Tripp, in hoping to raise basketball at the Institute to college level, lined 
up a 30 game schedule with some of the top notch small colleges in the 
East. Such clubs as M.I.T., Norwich University, Arnold College, Lowell 
Textile, Paterson, N. J. State Teachers, Philadelphia Textile, and Pratt 
Institute were on the schedule. 

The squad, itself, minus two of last year's regulars, seemed to lack 
scoring punch in its first four games, but came into great shape, and at one 
time had a 10 game winning streak. Two new additions to the Red and 
Grey starting lineup, "Dil" Alves and Lefty Haworth, plus "old dependable" 
Ray Foy supplied the scoring punch missing at the start of the season. The 
starting five was rounded out by two very capable defensive players, Dick 
Riley and Don McCauley, the latter having been outstanding in his back- 
board play. 

A well-balanced group of reserves was another important factor in the 
Tech squad's recent successes. Such luminaries as Bud Dunham, Fred Burke, 



58 



NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE 



Bill Wilson, "Chinky" Vanasse, George Kuliga, John Silvia, and Walt Bau- 
man have been called in, and have outdone themselves on more than one 
occasion. 

The team, after defeating Rhode Island School of Pharmacy by a lop- 
sided margin in the opener, went on to lose the next three to M. I. TV, 
Keene State Teachers College, and Norwich University. The Keene game, a 
hectic affair, was lost by the narrow margin of 52 to 51, and at times re- 
sembled a football contest. 

At Northfield, Vermont the strain of an extensive trip through Vermont 
and New Hampshire was quite evident, as the Red and Cray was beaten quite 
decisively by a well-conditioned Norwich University squad on its spacious 
floor. 

The Raiders bounced back, after dropping these two, and managed to 
defeat the Rhode Island School of Design by the score of 50 to 36. The 
next two games at home were heartbreakers; they were lost to Arnold Col- 
lege and Bryant College by the identical scores of 48 to 47. The game with 
Arnold was considered a moral victory, as Textile, playing its best ball of the 
season, came within one point of upsetting a bigger and more experienced 
team. 

Textile's most cherished victory to date is a 52 to 49 win over its 
bitterest rival, Lowell Textile. Spurting to a 23 to 6 lead in the first quarter, 
the Trippmen were not to be denied, although the ever improving Lowell 
quintet managed to make it extremely hot for the Red and Gray at the 
finish. A very clever job of "freezing the ball" managed to stave off 
possible defeat. 

The team had its hands full for the remainder of the season with such 
teams as Becker College, Paterson State Teachers College, and the Philadel- 
phia Textile Institute. At the writing of this there were 15 games yet to 
be played.

football Zeam 



For the first time in twenty-five years the New Bedford Textile Insti- 
tute fielded a team on the gridiron. The reactivation of football at the In- 
stitute proved to be quite successful. Although the season's record of 3 wins, 
4 losses, and 1 tie is not too impressive, the squad led by Coaches Clarry Has- 
kell, Charlie Tsouprake, Joe West, and trainer Larry Chongarlides gave a 
good account of themselves throughout the season. 

After dropping the season opener to the Massachusetts' Maritime Acad- 
emy, as the result of a fluke safety in the closing minutes of play, the Red 
Raiders went on to play Nichols Junior College to a standstill until the final 
play of the game when a Nichols' back managed to break loose to score the 
only touchdown of the game. 

The team really hit its stride in the next game, which was against New 
England College at Concord, New Hampshire. Tech pushed across two touch- 



60 



NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE 



downs, and could have scored on numerous other occasions but for untimely 
penalties called against them. 

Against Wenthworth Institute at Sargent Field, Textile dominated the 
play, but did not have the necessary scoring punch when near Wentworth's 
goaline. As a result the game ended in a scoreless tie. 

Adelphi College of Freeport, Long Island proved to be more than the 
Red Raiders could handle. The boys from Long Island, with a fast, shifty 
backfield, operating behind a heavier and more experienced line than Tech 
could field, romped to an easy 12-0 victory. 

The sailors aboard the U. S. S. Yosemite were the next victims for the 
Institute. Fielding a big, but inexperienced, team, the Navy could do 
nothing to stop the Institute as they rolled to their most impressive vic- 
tory of the season. 

Champlain College of Champlain, New York was, like Adelphi, much 
heavier and more experienced than Tech. After competing against such 
teams as Conn. University, Champlain found our defense quite vulnerable, 
and proceeded to an easy 19-0 victory. 

Textile ended its season at Sargent Field on Thanksgiving Day. Leicester 
Junior College, a small but scrappy aggregation, furnished the opposition. 
Played in a sea of mud, the Institute's ground game was slowed down con- 
siderably, but before the final whistle had been blown, the Raiders scored 
two touchdowns, and added a field goal for a well deserved 17-0 win. 

With only a few of this year's squad leaving at graduation, Coach Has- 
kell has visions of a banner year for 1949. He has already lined up a ter- 
rific schedule, which includes such teams as Adelphi College, Champlain 
College, Maine Maritime, and Wentworth Institute. This assures football 
enthusiasts at the Institute a season chock full of thrills. 

Members of the senior class who more than outdid themselves to 
bring prestige to the Institute were Co-Captains Dick Riley and Maurice 
Letourneau; Bud Dunham, starting end who also did some of the punting 
for the squad; Wylie Hamrick, starting tackle and son of Lyman Hamrick, 
former textile "great;" the "Cold Dust Twins," Art Ashley and Paul Don- 
aghy; Tony Cracia, starting guard and a great defensive lineman; Jimmie 
Lentz, who did a creditable job of filling in for Don Calnan when the latter 
was injured in the New England game. Also Steve Conet and John Silvia, 
who did a whale of a job in backing up the line for the Raiders; and, last 
but not least, Art Peisner, who deserves a lot of credit for his job as senior 
manager.

Soccer Zcam 



After a lapse of several years, the New Beford Textile Institute is 
represented by a Varsity soccer team. It boasts an international lineup with 
players from the United States, Chile, Mexico, France, Brazil, Greece, Haiti, 
and Palestine. The team was coached by Mr. Walter Pollard. An excellent 
season was completed with a record of seven wins and one loss. 

In the opening game of the season, a smooth passing Textile eleven 
downed Tabor Academy 2 to in a game played in Marion. 

The second game found Tech traveling to Boston to meet Suffolk Uni- 
versity. The Beantowners, although undefeated in 1947 and still having 
their entire first team intact, fell easy prey to the Millmen. The final score 
was 6 to 1 in a game played during a heavy rain, which made playing condi- 
tions hazardous for both teams.

NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE 



In the initial home contest of the season, the Red and Cray handed out 
a 5 to lacing to a younger and more inexperienced New Bedford Vocational 
aggregation at Ashley Field. 

The fourth game of the season was played at Bridgewater against the 
Bridgewater State Teachers College. Although hampered somewhat by the 
close confines of the local's field, Textile turned in an impressive 6 to 1 
victory. The game was iced by a four goal scoring drive in the third period. 

Returning home, Textile played host to its arch rival, Durfee Textile 
of Fall River, at Brooklawn Park. The visitors were greeted warmly by 
their New Bedford "cousins," and, when the smoke cleared, were on the 
short end of a 5 to 1 count. Once more a big, three goal third period pro- 
vided the downfall. 

With a season's record of five straight triumphs, the high-flying Tech 
booters journeyed to Providence to tangle with Brown University. The 
Bears, with victories over many of our leading eastern colleges, proved too 
tough for the Millmen, and won going away 9 to 0. 

The boys, feeling low after this stinging defeat, took it out on a hap- 
less Rhode Island College of Education eleven to the tune of 6 to in the 
seventh game of the season, which was also played in Providence. 

The 1948 finale proved to be the most exciting game of the season. 
It was a return battle with Durfee Tech in Fall River. It was a tight, de- 
fensive game throughout; with two minutes remaining in the contest and the 
score deadlocked at 0-0, Textile's captain, Carlos Hirmas, beat Durfee goalie, 
Walt Gregory, with a shot that broke the tie, and gave the Red Raiders 
their most treasured win of the season. 

With almost the same team returning next year, Textile hopes to have 
another excellent season.

Athletic Council 



The New Bedford Textile Institute Athletic Association, a compara- 
tively new organization in the school, originated at a meeting held by the 
Directors on September 13, 1948. It was voted that a committee be ap- 
pointed to encourage and govern all indoor and outdoor sports and handle 
all athletic business. 

The committee, comprised of five members of the Institute Faculty, 
two members of the Institute Trustee Board, and two members of the Stu- 
dent Body, at its first meeting, elected Mr. Francis Tripp, President; Mr. 
Adam Bayreuther, Treasurer; Mr. James Giblin, Secretary; Mr. Louis Fen- 
aux, Assistant Treasurer. At a later meeting, Mr. Fred Beardsworth was 
appointed to the Association. 

Student members of the Athletic Association, members of the Junior 
Class, are elected annually by a vote of the student body. 

It is the desire of the Association to supervise sports and ascertain 
that they be conducted in a sportsmanlike and honorable manner.

THEY RUN LIKE CLOCK 
WORK" 

— you hear comments like this among 
production-wise users of Reiner High 
Speed Tricot Machines and other Rein- 
er equipment. 

There is a reason of course. Since 1945, 
we have installed over 350 units of this 
steady and profitable producer. New 
and repeat orders give vivid evidence 
of its mounting popularity among knit- 
ters who know good machines when 
they see and use them.

New Bedford Knitting Co. 

The new Reiner High Speed 
Tricot Machine has a cruis- 
ing speed in excess of 450 
courses per minute, with a 
knitting width of 168 in- 
ches (or 84 inches with still 
higher speeds). It takes 
spools up to 21" warp flange 
diameter or of conventional 
size. It can be operated with 
either pattern wheel or a 
chain link drive. The 
changeover is a matter of 
minutes. This gives the 
knitter a selective pattern 
range of one bar or two bar 
tricot fabrics of rayon, ny- 
lon, silk, cotton, wool, etc., single-fibre or blend- 
ed yarns. We also manufacture 3-bar machines. 
Gauges from 14 to 32. 






The Reiner Warp Knitting Line also includes 
Simplex (double knit) Machines — Raschel Machines 

and a full line of preparatory equipment such as creels and 
warpers for all requirements, warping spools, hydraulic beam 
lift wagons, stop motion equipment, and auxiliary items, 
giving the knitter a continuous line from start to finish, all 
available from one source. 



Ask for our richly illustrated catalogs, or, better still, write to 
us for an appointment to see Reiner Machines in action at our 
showrooms in Weehawken, New Jersey.

REVERE TEXTILE PRINT ROLLS 

A New Bedford Product Famous For a Hundred Years 



For more than a century the New Bedford 
division of Revere Copper and Brass Incor- 
porated has been making textile print rolls. As 
a result of this long experience the Revere or- 
ganization is in a unique position to know and 
understand practical textile printing problems 
and how to meet them with rolls best adapted 
to give efficient, economical service. 

Textile print roll requirements are severely 
exacting. The copper must be homogeneous, 
free from imperfections, impurities, hard spots, 
strata, blow holes. It must be evenly, precise- 
ly tempered, sufficiently ductile to be "picked 
up" bv the engraver's tool, yet sufficiently 
hard to enable the edges of the engraving to 
stand, without becoming rounded or burred, 
through long service. 

The rolls must be perfectly concentric : they 
must be straight within close tolerance limits ; 
they must be strong enough to drive a heavy 
printing cylinder by friction; tough enough to 
withstand repeated pushing on and off man- 
drel: and must have the smoothness and tex- 
ture required to prevent the edges of the en- 




graving from being eroded by the "doctor" 
blades. 

The standard, most economical roll is the solid 
wall copper roll. Rolls of this type can be re- 
peatedly re-engraved, the old engraving being 
turned off. An average size solid wall copper 
roll should permit at least 25 such turn-offs, 
thus affording 26 new engraving surfaces dur- 
ing its life. 

Also available are cheaper rolls, "re-built" by 
drawing new copper tubes over cores consist- 
ing of old turned-down rolls. However, these 
are more likely to cause trouble, and in the 
end are definitely more expensive than the 
solid wall rolls. 

Revere specialists with many years of experi- 
ence in this field are at your service to assist 
you in specifying and obtaining rolls best 
adapted to serve your individual requirements 
Revere ability to render capable service of this 
kind is perhaps best attested by the fact that 
a large proportion of all textile print rolls in 
use throughout the United States today are 
of Revere make.
